The authors are thought to be members of the 71st Co. I.Y. Squadron. The photograph of the first author has the caption beneath 'Killed defending Oudtshoorn Pass 30/1/01'. From Gilbert (S.H.) Rhodesia and After, Being the Story of the 17th and 18th Battalions of Imperial Yeomenry in South Africa, page 312 it is believed the this may be Trooper John Collins who was killed in action at Buffels Klip near Oudtshoorn.
The photographs follow the Squadron through Rhodesia to Mafeking, Kimberley, Boshof and into the Cape Colony to Outdshoorn and Graff Reinet. Finally the departure from Cape Town aboard the SS. "Mongolian".
